This Cordova/Phonegap plugin for Android aligns versions of the Firebase library specified by other plugins to a specific version.

Table of Contents

Purpose

TL;DR: To prevent build failures caused by including different versions of the Firebase library.

To resolve these version collisions, this plugin injects a Gradle configuration file into the native Android platform project, which overrides any versions specified by other plugins, and forces them to the version specified in its Gradle file.

If you're encountering similar problems with the Android Support or Play Services libraries, checkout the sister plugins:

Installation

$ cordova plugin add cordova-android-firebase-gradle-release
$ cordova plugin add cordova-android-firebase-gradle-release  --variable FIREBASE_VERSION={required version}

The plugin needs to be installed with the cordova-fetch mechanism in order to satisfy its package dependencies by installing it via npm.

Therefore if you're installing with cordova@6, you'll need to explicitly specify the --fetch option:

$ cordova plugin add cordova-android-firebase-gradle-release --fetch

Library versions

Default version

By default, this plugin will use the most recent major version the Firebase library:

$ cordova plugin add cordova-android-firebase-gradle-release

Other versions

In some cases, you may want to specify a different version of the Firebase library - see here for a list recent versions. So this plugin enables you to specify other versions of the Firebase library using the FIREBASE_VERSION plugin variable.

For example, if you want to install v12 of the Firebase library, you'd specify the version via the variable:

cordova plugin add cordova-android-firebase-gradle-release --variable FIREBASE_VERSION=12.+

Credits

Thanks to Chris Scott, Transistor Software for his idea of extending the initial implementation to support dynamic specification of the library version via a plugin variable in cordova-google-api-version
